ParticipACTION's Community Challenge
JUNE 1 - 30, 2023
We are excited to announce that we were selected for a grant for the ParticipACTION Community Challenge coming June 1-30, 2023! We're doing our part to level the playing field by empowering individuals and strengthening communities through the power of sport and physical activity.
The Community Challenge is a national physical activity initiative that encourages everyone to get active together throughout June, with Canada's most active community winning the top prize of $100,000 to go towards local physical activity and sport initiatives.
Anyone can participate in the ParticipACTION Community Challenge by downloading and tracking their movement on the free ParticipACTION app throughout June, or by joining local Community Challenge activities that we are currently planning. We will be releasing more information on our planning activities soon. Stay tuned to our Facebook page!
This project has been made possible in part by ParticipACTION and the Government of Canada!
About ParticipACTION's Challenge
The ParticipACTION Community Challenge is a nationwide initiative that rallies communities to sit less and move more. The goal is to engage families, friends, neighbours, schools, organizations, businesses and fellow community members to get active and track all physical activity through the ParticipACTION mobile app from June 1 - 30, 2023.
Track as an individual in the ParticipACTION app:
Download the free app and join the Community Challenge. You can participate as an individual or as a team, and all your individual and team minutes count towards your community's total.
Track as an organization on the Community Challenge website:
Organizations such as BBBAA, schools, sport groups or workplaces can register on the website and track group activities like exercise classes, practices and events. Every minute tracked will go towards your community's total.
Who can participate in the Community Challenge?
EVERYONE! The Community Challenge is open to all individuals and organizations. All minutes tracked in the free ParticipACTION app and website from June 1 - 30 count towards a community's total score.
Every active minute counts! Whether participating in sports, walking the dog or working in the garden. Physical activity is important for everyone, at every age and we want our residents to build connections and remain engaged in a healthy and active lifestyle year round.
